Fire at Randall home was caused by fireplace embers

A fire that damaged a home in the 11500 block of 347th Avenue in Randall Friday afternoon is believed to have been caused by fireplace embers.

Here is a rundown from Randall Fire Department Capt. Bob Stoll, the department’s public information officer:

The fire started at the floor level on the first floor of a two story residential structure. The fire traveled within the exterior wall to the room above where it was contained and limited to three wall stud pockets. On arrival, fire was seen outside. An interior attack line was deployed to the second floor and an additional attack line to the exterior. Fire was extinguished before any further extension into the structure. There was extensive smoke and water damage. No one was home at the time of the fire and no one was injured. The fire is believed to be caused by fireplace embers and is classified as unintentional. The estimated loss to structure and contents is $100,000. Automatic aid from Twin Lakes Fire and Rescue and Wheatland Fire was dispatched with Randall on the initial call. Additional Mutual Aid was provided by Salem, Silver Lake and Spring Grove fire departments.”
